I recently learned a little about coins that are printed wrong. Sometimes the die (press?) makes an error in creating the coin. When that happens, these coins (like this penny) go from being valued at $.01 to up to $16,000+ (source). It’s their error that makes them so rare & so valuable.
I’m a lot like that misprint coin.
I’ve done my best I could but life has cast the die. I have a lot of errors & mistakes; some from nature & others from nurture. There are things that set me apart from the rest of the crowd. I’ve always been different. I am a rare & unique woman. And because of that, I’m extremely valuable.
You see, it doesn’t matter what life has done to me. It’s only increased my value. So yeah, I’m not the shiny, new penny. If that’s what you’re looking for, look somewhere else. I never will be that. But that’s okay because I don’t want to be. I have been through some serious shit & survived. Even if I stand alone, at least I’m standing strong.
I’m done trying to prove my worth to those who aren’t interested. Those who know me know I’m worth my weight in gold.
